About
Though the transverse aerial is most associated with Danusia Francis because of frequency, longevity, and prominence, it is named after Silvia Colussi-Pelaez in the code of points. Both were learning and performing the skill simultaneously, but while Francis was doing it in NCAA, Colussi-Pelaez did it at the 2013 world championships to have it named.
